Genderaction report on monitoring ERA roadmap priority 4 implementation
The European Research Area (ERA) Priority 4 focuses on gender equality and gender mainstreaming in research and innovation. The objective is to foster scientific excellence and breadth of research approaches by fully utilising gender diversity and equality and avoiding an indefensible waste of talent. Within their National Action Plans (NAPs), European Union Member States and Associated Countries are asked to develop policies which address gender imbalances, particularly at senior levels and in decision making, and which strengthen the gender dimension in research. The aim of GENDERACTION Work Package 3 (WP3) is to analyse the implementation of Priority 4 in NAPs, identify good practices and develop recommendations for the next ERA Roadmap as well as its monitoring of gender equality. The results of WP3 will inform and feed into the work of WP4 Mutual Learning and Capacity Building Activities and WP5 Policy Advice.
